9.1 The Current `ABOUT-NLS' Matrix
Languages are not equally supported in all packages using GNU
gettext. To know if some package uses GNU
may check the distribution for the `ABOUT-NLS' information file, for
some `ll.po' files, often kept together into some `po/'
directory, or for an `intl/' directory. Internationalized packages
have usually many `ll.po' files, where ll represents
the language. 9.3 Magic for End Users for a complete description of the format
More generally, a matrix is available for showing the current state
of the Translation Project, listing which packages are prepared for
multi-lingual messages, and which languages are supported by each.
Because this information changes often, this matrix is not kept within
gettext manual. This information is often found in
file `ABOUT-NLS' from various distributions, but is also as old as
the distribution itself. A recent copy of this `ABOUT-NLS' file,
containing up-to-date information, should generally be found on the
Translation Project sites, and also on most GNU archive sites.
